It is time for nominations for our new EEB Committee Chairs, for which we will hold elections in the coming weeks and who will begin their two-year terms this fall. The following committee chair positions are up for new elections:
- Seminars Committee. This committee will solicit names of speakers and topics of interest from members of the EEB community. They will organize formal seminar presentations either directly through the Faculty or coordinated with respective departments, colleges, or interdisciplinary units. They will coordinate opportunities for interaction between visiting scholars and graduate students and faculty at TAMU. At the beginning of each semester, this committee will compile a list of seminars campus-wide with relevance to EEB for distribution by the Communications Committee. The outgoing Seminars Chair will continue to work in an advisory role to assist with visits by seminar speakers invited during her/his term.
- Communications Committee. This committee will be responsible for overseeing maintenance of the EEB website, EEB presence on social media, and a EEB newsletter. The committee will work with administrative staff and EEB community members to disseminate information relevant to EEB in a timely manner.
- Assessment and Reporting Committee(ARC). The ARC will be tasked with monitoring student progress towards the degree and with reporting program metrics to administrative entities.
- Training and Outreach Committee. The committee will be charged with organizing and maintaining workshops (such as OSOS and Darwin Day) and other high-impact learning experiences that complement formal coursework.
If you know an EEB faculty member you would like to nominate for these positions, or you would like to nominate yourself, please do so at this Qualtrics link for nominations. These positions are rewarding, and as a member of the EEB Executive Committee, our chairs have a crucial voice in the direction and policies of the EEB Program.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to Nick Jacobsen, Micky Eubanks, or the current chair of any committee of interest.
